Hi everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself. I live in Saskatoon, SK Canada and my boyfriend and I are trying to conceive our first together. I'm 34 and he's 36. I have PCOS and Endo, and I don't ovulate, so I'm just a triple threat! LOL

I can't wait to get to know you ladies and support each other.

Welcome! I'm Jeralynn (25). DH (26) & I have been trying for 5 cycles.

You've joined a fantastic board! The ladies here are super supportive and knowledgeable! From the looks of the Fabulous Friday thread, a lot of the ladies have busy weekend plans, so it's probably going to be quiet until Monday.

I look forward to getting to know you, and I wish you luck on your journey!

Hi, I'm Jen (26) one of the co-hosts for the board. Me and DF (26) have been ttc since July 2011 and are currently doing our first IUI cycle.

to the board, I look forward to getting to know you! How long have you been ttc? Are you seeing an RE? It sounds like you've got a battle on your hands, however I'm a strong believer that where there is a specific problem, there's usually an answer.

to you and DB!

Hi fellow Canadian! I'm in Alberta, actually not too too far from you I bought one of my horses from a friend in Saskatoon. Anyways, I'm 29 and DH is 25 (26 here right away). We NTNP for a year, and have been TTC for a year now. In July I'm going in for a laprascopy to see if I have endo.

Good luck and lots of baby dust for you!!

Hi Jessi!

We have been TTC for 6 months now, but my last relationship it was a couple of years. I'm on a waiting list here in Saskatoon for the fertility clinic ( we only have one in the province) and won't get in until February 2014.... so I've been referred to Calgary, (only a 4-6 month wait)... so now it's just a matter of having "fun" and relaxing and waiting. We are putting our names on the adoption list too, just in case. My OBGYN here said that there is nothing that she can do with me here now, because the possible side affects could be ovarian cancer, so she just wants to make sure that I have the right supervision and the proper steps in order to make this happen. She's amazing and I trust her immensely. She, herself went through IVF for her first baby and her second one just showed up. So she knows the road and is very empathetic.

I can't wait to get to know you ladies in here better. Along with the ladies over in TTC with PCOS. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Hi!
I'm Ari (22), my dh (28) and I started trying in march and got pregnant right away but it turned out to be etopic so now we are waiting for medicine to work and my levels to get down to 0 so we can start folic acid for a couple months and then get back to TTC
You'll love this board, the ladies here are great

I'm so glad you were referred to Calgary! I have 2 friends who both had twins via IVF through Calgary fertility clinic. They have really high success rates! Depending on the results of my laprascopy, we will most likely be getting a referral there too. Good luck!

Hey Jessi!

Well we got our appointment in Calgary. Will be there Sept 19 & 20th! I can't believe that this is really happening. So all new mind set now. On the weightloss journey and am down 6 pounds in 2 weeks. Just cutting out a lot of stuff, and exercising more.

If you don't mind me asking who your OB is in Calgary? My surgery for my endo back in 2003, was a bad experience. I was told by my OB that in not so many words, "that I was fat, that is why I was feeling this way"... and when I had my surgery, and they found "some".... that I was told that it was all in my head.... so needless to say, I PRAY that you have a better experience than I do!

My OB is in Red Deer Dr.Cassis. She's been amazing! I'm so sorry you went through such heck with that horrible OB Unfortunately there are 2 OB's in Red Deer who are famous for such horrible behavior like that.

So excited you got into the Fertility Clinic! Good luck! My lap is on July 16th, so depending on those results I may be referred to the Calgary clinic after that.
